He lives and works in Paris. Robe's work has been displayed at the Salon de Montrouge exhibition since 2001.
As an artist, Christophe Robe likes to work with landscapes, a traditional genre with rules he examines and adapts for the modern era. He could also be called a figurative, or even realist artist, as he magnifies the effects of texture and colour in his depictions of tree trunks, bark, and branches. The tree is to Christophe Robe what a geometrical shape, colour, or method is to other artists – an almost obsessive medium the artist uses to explore the entire realm of painting by investigating the infinite number of possibilities it represents.
